By this, I mean that County Commissioners Court meetings should
be held when and where citizens can reasonably attend. As commissioner,
I will work to end the current practice of conducting County business
at 9:00 a.m. on weekdays in small meeting rooms that cannot accommodate

be posted on the County's web site. The taxpayer's business should
be conducted in full view of the taxpayers.

believe that our Commissioners should take the lead in seeking consensus
for a regional plan of public transportation.
believe our County Commissioners should lead by word and deed in
improving the health care safety net for the working poor and truly
indigent residents of Collin County.
